Welcome To Renmark North Primary School

Empowering all students to become life-long learners who are responsible, productive and engaged citizens, striving for their personal best in our ever-changing world

 

Renmark North Primary School is located approximately 10km from the township of Renmark and is nestled amongst vineyards and fruit properties.

Our school occupies a large area which includes two ovals, two playgrounds, a pool, netball/basketball courts, a gymnasium, Science room, Library and Computer room. Our preschool is located on-site. Playgroup, for children aged four and under, takes place at the preschool site every Friday morning.

We instil our STARR values: Success, Teamwork, Acceptance, Respect and Responsibility; and pride ourselves on the diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds of our school community.

Lessons are structured so that students have a minimum of 100 minutes a day for both Literacy and Numeracy, four days a week. We follow the Daily 5, Literacy Café and Words Their Way programs, while in Maths we use the Natural Maths approach. Targeted students receive specialised intervention. Additionally, we follow the Play is the Way program, which is a practical methodology for teaching social and emotional learning using guided play, classroom activities and an empowering language.

Science/P.E. and Modern Greek are taught for a further 100 minutes per week, while on Fridays we offer our Specialisation program, which includes The Arts, HASS (Humanities and Social Sciences – including History and Geography) and Technologies.

Extra curricula activities include Choir, SAPSASA and Instrumental Music.

All students are expected to read at home daily and record this in their Reading Log. Year 3-7 students are also expected to practise (and record) their Times Tables at home, at least three times a week.

As part of our behaviour management, each class has its own Flexible Learning Levels chart. Students achieve higher levels on the chart when displaying positive behaviour. Students who are operating at the top levels are able to negotiate with the teacher, when it comes to designing where and how they can work most effectively.

We have a focus on data collection which shows students’ progress in the areas of Maths, Reading, Attendance rates, Well-being, and School and Community Engagement. This is displayed in a dedicated Data Room, allowing us to monitor and track students’ progress.

Our family and community involvement is strong, and students are at the centre of everything we do.
